A Chicago fan listened to the Cubs' World Series win at his father's grave



A North Carolina man drove all the way to Indiana to listen to the seventh game of the World Series at his father's gravesite, keeping a promise the two men made to each other.

Wayne Williams listened as the Chicago Cubs bested the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in extra innings of the final game of the World Series at a military section of Greenwood Forest Lawn Cemetery. 

Williams sat at his father's grace draped in a "W" victory flag. 

His father was also named Wayne Williams and was a Navy veteran. He died in 1980 at age 53. 

The two Williams men made a pact that if the Cubs ever made it back to the World Series, they would listen to the games together. 

Williams' story has brought many a tear to an eye.
